SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By Delegation Order No. 00–037.00, effective December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated: (1) The authority to develop power and transmission rates to Western’s Administrator; (2) the authority to confirm, approve, and place such rates into effect on an interim basis to the Deputy Secretary of Energy, and (3) the authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect on a final basis, to remand, or to disapprove such rates to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The existing rate schedules consist of separate rates for firm electric service, firm point-to-point transmission service, firm transmission service of Salt Lake City Area/Integrated Projects power, and non-firm point-to-point transmission service on the P–DP transmission system. Rate Schedules PD–F7, PD–FT7, PD–FCT7, and PD–NFT7 were approved under Rate Order No. WAPA–138 1 for a 5-year period beginning on October 1, 2008, and ending September 30, 2013. The existing firm electric and transmission service formula rates provide adequate revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and to repay investment within the allowable period. The rates are calculated annually to ensure repayment of the project within the cost recovery criteria set forth in DOE Order RA 6120.2. Western is proposing no change at this time to the rate formulas. Since no changes are anticipated to the formula rates and the existing rate formulas provide sufficient revenue to recover all appropriate costs, Western proposes to extend the current rate schedules pursuant to 10 CFR 903.23(a).

EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.

Abstract: Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make one-timeonly notifications. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35023 the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. Monitoring requirements specific to equipment leaks of VOC in petroleum refineries provide information on which components are leaking VOCs. NSPS Subpart GGG references the compliance requirements of NSPS subpart VV, and NSPS subpart GGGa references the compliance requirements of NSPS subpart VVa. Owners or operators are required to periodically record information identifying leaking equipment, repair methods used to stop the leaks, and dates of repair. Semiannual reports are required to measure compliance with the standards of NSPS Subparts VV and VVa as referenced by NSPS subparts GGG and GGGa. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NSPS. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least two years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. Form Numbers: None Respondents/affected entities: Petroleum refineries. Respondent’s obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subparts GGG and GGGa) Estimated number of respondents: 160 (total). Frequency of response: Semiannually. Total estimated burden: 24,525 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total estimated cost: $2,319,816 (per year), includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the respondents is very low, negative or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours in the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR. However, there is an increase in burden costs due to an adjustment in labor rates.
